Slim’s Musical Inspiration
Slim The Mobster: "I been around music my whole life, so I can’t really say what actually made me do it. It’s just something that I like. It seemed like fun before it was work. I knew when I was young that I could write music. I used to write dumb raps when I was a kid.
Anything with Biggie on it, anything with Tupac, all that stuff. My first album that I bought myself was N.W.A. and The D.O.C.
"I wasn’t really serious about music until like 5 years ago. I guess you can say I was expressing myself. Some of it wasn’t even rhyming.
"I think when I really noticed was in the 6th grade when I had to write a poem for class. It was real good. That’s one of the things that sparked the music.
"My grandmother used to play gospel music, oldies, Marvin Gaye, and things like that. Saturdays when she cleaned up, [there was] no TV on; just the music.
"[I bought] anything with Biggie on it, anything with Tupac, all that stuff. My first album that I bought myself was N.W.A. and The D.O.C. Those were things that were being played. Not in the fact of the time period, but because the music was classic."
